Consultation to start on Kapiti expressway

7:33 pm on 19 November 2010

The Transport Agency has given approval for consultation to start with Kapiti Coast residents affected by the building of a four-lane highway - three weeks behind schedule.

The proposed MacKays to Peka Peka Expressway is part of the Government's $2.4 billion overhaul of State Highway 1 into Wellington.

NZTA says consultation was delayed so options for the route could be narrowed down.

Details of the possible routes will be issued at a public meeting on 28 November.

Consultation is for 10 weeks from that date.
